    Hello CSS Tricks,

    I am preparing to design/code a website for a artist friend of mine, and will then power the site with WordPress. My question is: will it be necessary for me to secure web hosting for the images and WordPress files, or can a custom theme and all imagery be hosted directly on WordPress backend- thus making hosting unnecessary?

    Thanks in advance,
    – j

    If I’m not mistaken you can host through WordPress (WP), but if your friend wants their own domain (www.yourwebsite.com) you’ll need your own host. Hosting isn’t that expensive, so if your artist friend is serious I’d recommend finding a host (WP recommends some). If it’s just a hobby go the free route.

    That’s the advice I needed- thanks Erik. I think we will definitely be going the paid hosting route. I was looking for some ways to help him out cost wise- via free image hosting like flickr, etc.- but I heard this is slower loading time, etc. Happen to know if this is true?
